Abstract

Book Reviews 309 among working-class Mexican families. Gender, culture, and ethnicity in- cludes both quantitative and qualitative research methods. Independent segments of the book have also been dedicated to a discussion of childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, and late adulthood. In her article, ‘‘Aging Minority Women,’’ Padgett discusses resilience and adaptive functioning among older women of color, exploring how they thrive despite being ‘‘old, poor, female, and of minority status’’ (p. 174). On the other end of the life course continuum, Phyllis Bronstien explores the behaviors of Mexican parents toward their children. Results are com- pared with those represented in literature on American families. The author stresses the importance of conducting research within multiple contexts prior to the assumption of universal behaviors. While the implications of these findings are not discussed, they would undoubtedly provide the basis for an interesting classroom discussion. Overall, both books represent excellent teaching tools either as com- panion volumes or on their own. The articles in Gender, culture and ethnicity seem most appropriate for a student readership. The articles in Race, class, and gender will undoubtedly serve as an excellent resource for professionals striving to incorporate issues central to culture, class, and gender into their
